9 of Spades
The main aim of the project is to create something astonishing, collectable and unique. We have invited 54 top digital creative ninjas and asked them to pick up one card each and make a design of it in their own style and technique. We are proud that there are such gurus as Joshua Davis, Shotopop, Brosmind, Your-Majesty and others. The one and the only requirement to the authors was so that the theme of their artwork should fit to the card they’ve chosen best and as a result we’ve got a deck of individually illustrated playing cards. Needless to say, that the project is now going the right way and reaching the goal rapidly. The decks will be released in a strictly limited edition by the end of April. --Creative Cards Project/Digital Abstracts admin
Lately I got invited by Digital Abstracts to be part of the list of artists, participating for the Creative Cards Project, among the lists were some of the great artists, illustrators and designers of today’s industry, and i was lucky to be picked and be part of this project. I was late on picking out a card, so I end up choosing the ones that were left, so I picked 9 of spades, cuz I figured the more the merrier, and prolly be more challenging for me to occupy enough space for the 9 spades. I googled and look through some definitions about spades and what 9 of spades is all about, I stumbled upon too many definition, so I ended up coming up with something on my own. I wanted my card to have it’s own personality, something mysterious, she could be dark but has a mixture of vividness to her, like all the definitions of the card, she’s very much a mystery to everyone.
Here are some of the pics and screen shots of the creative process.
Here’s the final 9 of Spades I made for the Creative Cards Project, I kind of edited the outline a bit to add more edge to it, and make the image come out more, and I also got rid of my number 9, since it has to be uniformed, along with the other cards. Only a few more cards yet to be revealed and we’re good to go, but you can pre-order the whole deck or just the fave ones here . Place your order now, before May 1st, to get the free poster.
